Buffalo Turkey Zucchini Boats

This recipe is a simple Buffalo Turkey Zucchini Boat recipe that only calls for 4 ingredients.  Hollowed out zucchini squash is stuffed with cooked ground turkey mixed with buffalo wing sauce; topped with cheese; and baked.

It’s a great recipe to use up all that summer zucchini! And I especially love it because it’s perfect for my 2B Mindset lunch and dinner meals.  (For lunch just add an FFC on the side)


  • 4 zucchini (I prefer medium/large ones so I can get more stuffing in there)
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with coconut oil spray (any spray will do but I prefer coconut oil)
  2. Place a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat.  Add the turkey and break it apart while cooking.  Cook for 7-9 minutes, until the turkey is cooked through.
  3. Remove skillet from the heat. Stir in buffalo wing sauce.
  4. As the turkey cooks, cut the zucchini in half, lengthwise.  Use a spoon (I’ve found a grapefruit spoon works perfectly) to scoop out the seeds and center of each zucchini half.  Leave about 1/4 inch think zucchini boat.  Place the zucchini boats in the baking dish cut-side up.
  5. Spoon the turkey mixture into the zucchini boats. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Cover the baking dish with foil, and bake for 30 minutes.
